Join us for a conversation between psychoanalyst Juliet Mitchell, renowned author of Psychoanalysis and Feminism, and Siri Hustvedt, a celebrated novelist and essayist whose most recent work is “A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women.” Topics will include Bourgeois’s intense engagement with psychoanalysis; the way art functioned for her; the connection between her moods, her body, and her imagery; literary dimensions of her provocative writings; and issues relating to feminism. Exhibition curator Deborah Wye, a longtime friend of the artist’s and a scholar of her work, moderates. Learn more: http://mo.ma/2lNlQec
This program is made possible by the Anna Marie and Robert F. Shapiro Seminar and Lecture Endowment Fund, established by Jeanne and Bob Savitt, Kristen and A. Andrew Shapiro, and Robert F. Shapiro, Jr.
